    Pros

    Fun work environment when you have a good team. So rewarding to help a bride feel beautiful and confident, and to be a part of her wedding process. Commission based, so it's nice when you have a great connection with a bride, you'll often work with her bridesmaids, mother/mother in law, flower girls, etc. Loved seeing the constant flow of new designs! Stores carry multiple sizes of every dress, so you don't have to shove a size 10 into a size 4 sample and make her feel self conscious.

    Cons

    Can be a very catty environment - lots of girls in a competitive sales scenario. Corporate is heavy handed with rules. Lots of shipping issues that were impossible to resolve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more support to ASM/SM dealing with difficulties like shipping delays or difficult customers. Repeatedly telling someone "sorry there's nothing I can do" does not make for happy customers. Quit the rule that we have to cut up dresses that are discontinued or flawed - be socially responsible! Have the dresses shipped back to corporate to be repurposed (fabric, beading, sashes), or partner with a charity who accepts wedding dress donations.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Alfred Angelo Bridal.

    Interview Details

    Very easy. The primary goal is to find someone who will fit the "culture" of the store. As long as you're well-dressed, punctual, and have a great personality, you'll probably get hired. If you're shy/reserved, and don't make an effort to connect with the manager/interviewer, you won't get the job. Bridal is about relationships - if you can't form (or fake!) an instant connection with someone, they won't trust you enough to buy a dress from you.

    Interview Questions
    • There really were not questions - it was more of a conversation to figure out if I was a good fit and would blend well with the existing team.   View Answer
